2017 Les Capriades Pet'Sec Pét-Nat14081029
WINEMAKER: Pascal Potaire & Moses Gadouche
VARIETAL: Chenin Blanc, Menu Pineau, Chardonnay
REGION: Loire Valley, FR
This is mostly chenin blanc with some menu pineau and a touch of chardonnay, and their driest cuvée. Zero dosage, zero sulphur. Mineral intensity with laser precision, this is truly compelling stuff. Tiny quantities.
Pascal and Moses are the undeniable kings of pétillant naturel. Always disgorged, extended time on lees, their wines are clean and consistent with great length and complexity.
